Yelan is an unreleased 5-star Genshin Impact character, but new leaks have given Travelers a sneak peek at what they can expect when she makes her debut, including her abilities and weapon. 

Yelan has now been officially revealed by HoYoverse and a number of leaks have also begun circulating online. From details surrounding her speculated release date to her weapon type and appearance, the recent 2.6 beta has revealed plenty of new information. 

Whether you’re aiming to save your hard-earned Primogems for Yelan, or just wish to know all the latest information about her, then our release hub has you covered. Make sure you check out all the Yelan details below to ensure you’re ready for her debut. 



Is there a release date for Yelan in Genshin Impact?

While the developers have yet to confirm a release date for the Yelan banner, a reliable Genshin Impact leaker has noted that she could be available in the 2.7 update. This would mean players can add her to their team after the release of Ayato, who will be released in the 2.6 update.

Lumie also notes that Kuki Shinobu – an unreleased 4-star character – will also release in the second half of the 2.7 update. Of course, like all leaks, this should be taken with a grain of salt. 

However, with Inazuma content wrapping up, we can expect to see more news on Yelan’s arrival soon. We’ll be sure to update this section once we hear more information on the 5-star’s release date. 


Yelan abilities in Genshin Impact

Yelan’s abilities have yet to be officially revealed, but the latest leak has discovered that the 5-star will wield a Water Vision. This would suggest that her abilities will be tailored around drenching her enemies and setting up elemental reactions from afar.

Notable Genshin Impact data miner, @GenshinMains has recently leaked the abilities for Yelan. Here’s what you need to know:

Yelan Passives

  • When the party has 1/2/3/4 Elemental Types, Yelan’s Max HP is increased by 6%/12%/18%/30%.
  • So long as an Exquisite Throw is in play, your own active character deals 1% more DMG. This increases by a further 3.5% DMG every second. The maximum increase to DMG dealt is 50%.
  • Gains 25% more rewards when dispatched on a Liyue Expedition for 20 hours.

Yelan Elemental Skill – Lingering Lifeline

Yelan Fires off a Lifeline that tractors her in rapidly, entangling and marking opponents along its path. When her rapid movement ends, the Lifeline will explode, dealing Hydro DMG to the marked opponents based on Yelan’s Max HP.


During this time, Yelan can control her sprint direction and can end her rapid movement by using this Skill again. Additionally, each opponent marked by the Lifeline when it explodes grants Yelan a 34% chance to obtain Breakthrough. Not until she begins to tug on the strings do evildoers, crooks and scheming villains alike know that there is no escape.

Yelan Elemental Burst – Depth-Clarion Dice

Yelan deals AoE Hydro DMG and creates an Exquisite Throw, which aids her in battle.

The Exquisite Throw follows the character around and will initiate a coordinated attack under the following circumstances, dealing Hydro DMG based on Yelan’s Max HP. Can occur once every second when your active character uses a Normal Attack. Will occur each time Yelan’s Lifeline explodes and hits opponents.


Yelan Constellations

Along with her abilities, Yelan’s constellations have also been revealed by Genshin Impact dataminers. Here’s what each constellation level has to offer for Yelan:

  • Level 1 – Each opponent marked by Lifeline will restore 7 Energy for Yelan. Each use of Lingering Lifeline can restore a maximum of 21 Energy.
  • Level 2 – Lingering Lifeline gains 1 additional charge.
  • Level 3 – +3 to Elemental skill.
  • Level 4 – Exquisite Throw coordinated attack DMG is increased by 30%.
  • Level 5 – +3 to Elemental burst.
  • Level 6 – In this state, all of Yelan’s Normal Attacks will be the stronger Breakthrough Barbs. These Breakthrough Barbs will have all its normal abilities and the DMG dealt will be considered Charged Attack DMG, dealing 130% of their normal DMG.

Yelan weapon in Genshin Impact

Early datamines suggest that Yelan will wield a Bow. Renowned leaker, @anonsbelle, found that the unreleased character will barrage her enemies from afar with deadly arrow shots.

Of course, like all Genshin Impact leaks, the developers could change her weapon type before she goes live in a future update.
